AGR 2018 — Atlantic General Relativity Conference and Workshop 2018 – First Announcement
The 2018 Atlantic General Relativity Conference will be held from Tuesday, June 6 to Thursday, June 7 at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. (Approximately a 2 hour drive north of Halifax.)
As in previous years, the theme of Atlantic GR will be all aspects of classical and quantum gravity. The format will consist of one invited talk along with contributed talks by participants. The invited speaker this year is Dr. Latham Boyle (Perimeter Institute).
The Atlantic GR Conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop on Monday, June 5, 2018 aimed at the non-expert. The bulk of the workshop will consist of invited lectures from Dr. Chris Clarkson (Queen Mary University of London) [to be confirmed]. The format will include ample time for discussion and collaboration. (see website for details).
There will be no registration fee for either the workshop or the conference. We expect funding to partially subsidize accommodation in university residence for a limited number graduate students. If you wish to request this support, please consult the conference website.
The local organizing committee is Robert van den Hoogen, Viraj Sangai and Alan Coley. The scientific organizing committee also includes Viqar Husain, Sanjeev Seahra, Edward Wilson-Ewing, Ivan Booth and Hari Kunduri. Both the conference and the workshop are sponsored by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS), the Perimeter Institute, and St. Francis Xavier University.
